In brief: Here is the update..

Psa usage for detecting prostate cancer has undergone drastic change, especially over the past 6-8 yrs, since its discovery in 1970.

In brief: Not sure

This topic is hotly debated among health care providers and there is no consensus on screening.
If there are symptoms of prostate problems, or an examination shows an enlarged or irregular prostate, a psa should be done. Otherwise, there is no clear consensus on routine psa screening, though it is not generally recommended before the age of 50.

I have to not agree....American urology association guidelines and American cancer society advises screening in pts with family history of prostate cancer BEFORE age 50 !
Dr. Steven Ginsberg
Sorry about the omission. I agree that family history is a risk factor that requires earlier screening. Thanks!
